Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky faces two new allegations of child abuse, according to The Patriot-News, which first broke the story in March.

Penn State Sex Abuse Scandal

The new allegations are being investigated by the state's Children and Youth Services, which means the accusations are coming not from adults, but from children, according to the report.

Right now, there are eight other alleged cases mentioned in the Grand Jury report. A ninth person reportedly came forward with allegations after Sandusky's arrest on November 5. In each of those cases, the alleged victims are now adults.

If the cases being investigated by CYS turn out to be credible, they would be the first cases we know of that involve alleged victims who are currently younger than 18.
